GameSpot Moderations?

#1 Posted by double_decker (145816 posts) -
So who here has been Moderated by GS? If so, how many? Are you a GS rebel? A goody goody? A victim of wrongful Moderation? Or something else? Enjoy the poll 8)

i got moderated recently. i try to comply with the rules but sometimes i go overboard.
#3 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
I've got one moderation, which I got when I was a n00b at GS.
#4 Posted by jediknight52501 (69715 posts) -
i have had 3 moderations since i have been here, 2 warnings and one violation where i lost points. at least i am not banned here like i am on Gamefaqs. i was always getting moderations on there.
#5 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
I'll make sure never to get another moderation here again. One is already a lot in my opinion.

Yeah, I'm just here for the poll, but I've never been modded before.

In 3 years if you stay constantly pretty active, you could get to like level 45 -level 50 I think. I've only been here for a little over a year and wasn't active for like 3 months out of the first year, yet still got to the level I am today.

Being consistently active in this site will help your level and post count.

i did and that is how i lost points.
#31 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
I've never lost points. I got suspended my first time I got moderated. No warning, nothing. :( What do point losses do? How much does it affect your level?

i went from Level 23 back to Level 22 and i was not happy, and i have never been suspended on here before, i am trying to avoid that.

So you always get a level loss when you get a point loss?

depends on how far you are in a Level, i lost like 60 points, i was in the low levels of Level 23. also depends on the moderation.

Wow, 19!?! I thought that after a few you would get the banhammer.

I was still quite new at that time, so maybe since you got that much in a year, I can do the same thing. :P

Nobody really knows that, but it depends on the infraction, I was Moderated twice at the end of level 29, both point losses, the first time I lost 87% and the second time it was 94% and made me start out at .001% both times I was Moderated for Level 29, but also after they take the points off it makes it harder to max % daily for a while, I have to be on about 6 hours to max cap when most people can after about an hour of activity

Although fastest might soon be giving you competition in the summertime with his 300 posts a day minimum.

Depends on the Moderation, jakeboudville has about 50 and Whicker89 has close to that as well, but if they are minor you won't be banned, but other times if it's a major offense you can be banned with just a few

So you also can't reclaim your % quickly. Tricky, very tricky. I don't remember ever reading that part.

Yeah, it's possible, in that year I also took about 2 months off here and there for little breaks, posting that much you need to take a break now and then to live a little :lol:
